The rich cultural heritage and exquisite craft forms of India have always been a source of inspiration for global fashion and international designers and the latest thing to add on to this list are the beautiful embroideries done at a workshop called ‘Aditiany’ in Kala Ghoda, Mumbai, India. Finding their way to the red carpets through the collections of celebrated designers like Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Saint Laurent and Michael Kors, these stunning embroidered and embellished pieces are inspired by the Indian crafts and motifs.
In 2010, Louis Vuitton did a whole collection inspired from the Indian festivals of lights, Diwali, which showcased beautiful pieces of ready-to-wear saree dresses made with Benarasi brocades and incorporated Indian traditional motifs like paisleys and monogrammed flowers. Dior Resort 2008 collection done by John Galliano also saw a beautiful fusion of Indian colors and motifs exhibiting intricate embroidery work on silk and chiffon, gold embellished borders, paisleys and temple motifs in bright hues of pinks and greens.
